    Im working on a new site and I have inserted a scrolling text as part of the front page. Looking at in Explorer it all looks fine, however in Netscape there is a large space on the bottom, which is the equivalent of the space the entire rolling text takes up had it been static text. Can anyone please help me with this? Im obviously doing something wrong in the coding of this scrolling text.

    The URL is http://www.relocationenterprises.com/index5.htm

    Appreciate all help! :classic:

    In Firefox. at least, there is a huge blank space after the content.

    seems to be the "direction='up'" part but I don't know how to work around it...

    Are you using the marquee tag? If so, it will not work in Netscape... this tag was created by Microsoft for Internet Explorer and has never been part of HTML per se.

    What Netscape does is simply ignore the tag, and therefore output the entire text that would have been scrolled... sounds like this is your problem... I am unsure whether the newer generation Mozilla or Opera browsers support marquee, but certainly the older ones will not.
